To continue the momentum and create a lasting legacy for disabled people after the London 2012 Games, Sainsbury’s AK4A training has been established, supported by £1 million of National Lottery funding from Sport England.

This initiative is being delivered through the English Federation of Disability Sport and sports coach UK.

What does the training involve?
It involves a three hour practical workshop, supported by online resources to improve skills, know-how and confidence in delivering sports based activities to disabled people.

Who is this course targeted at?
The training is for those who:

  • Represent a community based group or organisation where the primary focus is not currently as a sport or physical activity provider
  • Have direct contact with disabled people of all ages
  • Have the opportunity to introduce physical activity and sport to disabled people

In line with this, the course provides first step training to support:
  • Support workers including those in day, community and faith centres
  • Parents
  • Carers and personal assistants
  • Healthcare professionals
  • Volunteers
  • Community based groups and organisations

By educating and working directly with these community providers we have the opportunity to further establish a pathway for disabled people in physical activity and sport.
